A huge guy with heavy glasses and a drop tuned electric guitar, a
woman 10 feet tall, computer beats and synth basses. Post industrial
beats, stoner bass loops, metal riffs and german lyrics. Guitars cannot
be to loud, drum patterns never to stoical, bass licks never to dark,
lyrics never to sealed.
„Their songs are precise, concise in the best sense, and in use
of the sometimes minimalistic means highly effective. And damn powerful.
Even if their message is disenchanting, their sound gives pleasure“ (Felix Klopotek, Stadtrevue Cologne magazine 4/2013)
Internet activist Frank Christian Stoffel and vocalist Doris Mücke
make music since the early nineties. In 1990 they started off with their
avantgarde industrial project ‚und der ganze Rest’. They are quite well
known here, as over the last seven years they delivered superb
electronic bass music as „Das Blaue Monster“.
Now they got back to their roots researching the power of guitar music,
transfering the repetitive, hypnotic, compelling element of Techno to
their very own idea of Stoner Metal.
And yeah, that’s quite new for our small net label here. Why? Because
we want to – and because we rather stand for a certain attitude than
adapting to a certain genre.
Furthermore, this our very first release under a true free culture licence.
Because FC Stoffel and Doris Mücke prefer being part of the solution
than being part of the problem: They commit themselves to a
strengthening of creative commons. They stand for a change in thinking
in dealing with cultural goods – turning away from exclusive
maximisation of profits, turning towards free access and fair options
